I don't feel confident with handmade names, but I think you have it.  

German Banded Transparent

I _think_ that's right.

There are also translucent Indian's called Maglite. They look dark but backlight them and they are not all opaque.

The curvatures of the lines definatly look like indian. Are there transparent indians ? Ive only seen opaque...

Yeah, that's another can of worms.  Some of the opaque Indians with a black base appear a deep "translucent" purple base when you shine a light through. 

If it's clearly translucent without strong light (like your pic) I would consider it to be something other than the Indian category, but that's just my opinion

Banded Transparent Handmade. I have issues with this kind being called Indians. There is such a wide range to this type, and yes some can look like Indians. Not this one though.
